NOVEMBER Animal & Wildlife challenge

Hi everyone
I am hosting this months challenge. I hope you like the references.

GUIDELINES FOR OUR MONTHLY CHALLENGE

Please read carefuly - makes everything more exciting!!

On the first of each month a reference photo or photos will be posted in a thread entitled Fur, Scales and Feathers Challenge.

Artwork can be any size on any surface and in any medium.

Each member taking part can create a work using the chosen reference/s
(whole or cropped).

Our "Reveal" date is the 20th October 2018 - it's much more fun if we all post our paintings on or about the same date - so please don't post your entries until the Reveal Date, entries can be posted from the 20th on until the end of the month. Many thanks.

Thanks for hosting Deanna. Hopefully I will be able to get involved this month - I feel as though I missed out on October completely!

Re: NOVEMBER Animal & Wildlife challenge

Awww, look at dat husky puppy! They're the most beautiful puppies of all (not that I'm prejudiced, after owning 5 huskies!)
Lovely photos! What kind of owl is that in a palm tree? I've only seen the burrowing ones here in SWFL.

Re: NOVEMBER Animal & Wildlife challenge

I won't be able to post my picture on time, I'm on holiday for part of next week . I'll be able to post it the weekend after though (hopefully it will be finished!). I'm about 5 hours in now.
